Camp Statement on President Signing H.R. 674

November 21, 2011

Washington, DC – Today, Ways and Means Chairman Dave Camp (R-MI) released the following statement in reaction to the President signing a repeal of the three percent withholding law on certain payments made to vendors by government entities, legislation that modifies the income definition used to determine eligibility for certain health programs in the Democrats’ health care law and provisions targeted at increasing job opportunities for America’s veterans.  

“I am pleased the President is signing into law another pro-jobs bill the Ways and Means Committee shepherded through Congress.  Like the 1099 reporting provision repeal, these are ideas that both parties and the Administration have supported and will provide job creators with more certainty, while also reducing the deficit.  I commend Committee Members Wally Herger and Diane Black for the hard work they put into their respective bills.”
